We believe technology makes complex meetings simpler and simple meetings better

Lumi is the dominant player globally in the provision of software and real-time audience engagement technology to facilitate Annual General Meetings for Companies (whether listed or non-listed), Associations, Legislative Bodies, Membership Organizations, and Partnerships. Based on proprietary, patented technology, Lumi provides software, hardware, and services that assist registrars or event organizers to register delegates and provide live, secure polling, Q&A management services, and relevant reporting.

Lumi is headquartered in Hampshire, UK, where central functions including finance, product development, and marketing are based, but has offices in 11 countries across Europe, APAC, The Middle East, Africa, and the Americas. Highly differentiated in the majority of markets where it is active, it benefits from extremely strong, experienced, and renowned MDs who head up each in-country team.

Testimonials

“Lumi are fantastic. Not only do they offer a technological service that is changing and shaping the events industry; they also provide this service with passion, excellent customer service and creativity.”

"We have been fortunate enough to have Lumi's servies available to us for our AGM for the past 9 years and can honestly say that we have every bit of confidence in the system and staff behind it."

Sue O'Brien: Co Sec

"Merci à toute votre équipe qui a été d'un soutien extraordinaire tout au long de la soirée (c'était vraiment réconfortant d'entendre vos directives dans les écouteurs)."

Nadia, The Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montréal

"I would like to express my appreciation to Lumi for its system reliability and professionalism extended to us to successfully implement the 'first of its kind' solution to the Malaysian market in only the first few months of deployment."

Teik Thye Khaw

"Lumi's depth of knowledge in their industry is unrivalled."

Rae Rohm

“Lumi Crew - We can't thank you enough for all you did to make our Clergy Session and Annual Conference session go incredibly smoothly. The feedback has been positive, the participation numbers were at or above in-person sessions, and the technology was easy for our delegates to use. Thanks again for everything!”

S Davidson, North Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church, USA

“Your support and efforts in planning and accomplishing this top-notch meeting certainly contributed to our success. We sincerely appreciate your efficient, quality of service, the level of detail and accountability you have demonstrated on this virtual AGM, and the way you conducted the service as a whole. Yousef and all Lumi Team- you truly did a remarkable job and made the meeting run seamlessly. Thanks again for the opportunity to work with you and looking forward for a long-term relationship”

M Turk, Ahli Bank, Bahrain

"We recently used Lumi for our house of delegates elections. We were impressed by the instant response time of the voting results – they were much quicker than other systems we’ve used previously. The producer on site was also very helpful, always one step ahead and doing what needed to be done before being asked. With the capabilities of the Lumi system, we decided to add in some survey questions along with the elections this year to get attendee feedback on the meeting format; those responses were a very useful gauge in deciding what we should keep or change. Overall, working with Lumi was a great experience, it would be difficult to think of anything we would do differently to make the voting process better next year!"

APMA

“ Je tenais à vous remercier pour le bon déroulement de notre AGA. Pour un premier AGA virtuel, c’était un succès et c’est grâce à l’expertise de votre équipe. Je n’étais pas sur place, mais les commentaires reçus ne sont que positifs. Merci a tous"

N Quintao, Canadian Teachers Federation, Canada
